After serving as vice chair of the NEOMED Board of Trustees for the last two years, Paul R. Bishop, J.D., was elected as its new chair during the University’s quarterly trustees meeting, held Sept. 12.
“We have been fortunate to have Paul Bishop on our Board of Trustees,” said President Gershen. “He’s been a trusted, collaborative leader in Stark County, Northeast Ohio and throughout the region for many years. His executive leadership, business knowledge and collegial style provides the Board with a seamless transition that allows our great work in the region to continue.”
A veteran of the Army, Bishop served as a second lieutenant and intelligence officer. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from The Ohio State University and a law degree from The University of Akron.
Bishop’s predecessor, Robert J. Klonk, CEO of the Oswald Companies, recently completed his second one-year term.
